It is parent’s responsibility to:-
- Know the expiry date of medicines kept in school and provide replacements before they become out of date.
- Notify the school immediately of any medication changes and provide a new correctly labelled supply.
- The above information also applies to inhalers and Epipens.
Inhalers, Epipens and other medicines should go home at the end of term to enable parents to check them.
All medicines should always be taken to the school office where they will be stored in a secure cupboard.
No medication will be administered by staff unless a consent form has been filled in and signed by a parent.
Consent forms are obtained from the office.
Asthma inhalers are kept in the classroom and are accessible to the user at all times, children should be encouraged to be self sufficient in the use of these.
